Spiders: Habitats


The following table shows the numbers of species found in Staffordshire, in each of the habitat categories used by the Spider Recording Scheme.

It is clear that deciduous woodland is the most diverse habitat for spiders, which is not unexpected, but that heathland come second is more surprising. Heathlands in Staffordshire comprise the uplands of the Peak District and the lowlands of Cannock Chase and its surrounds.
